Northern Strandona

Population451 million

The Republic of Northern Strandona is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its public floggings, daily referendums, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 451 million Northern Strandonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 14.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Northern Strandonan economy, worth 36.4 trillion Strandenes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Basket Weaving, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 80,696 Strandenes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

More money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, third world countries are rich in "I Love Northern Strandona City" t-shirts, and the tinfoil-hat crowd also recommend tinfoil wallets. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern Strandona's national animal is the strandonian swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Northern Strandona is ranked 179,438th in the world and 6,277th in Osiris for Most Avoided, scoring 0.87 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
